Abstract

Dans cet article, nous démontrons, en utilisant des données de l'Enquête canadienne sur les capacités financières, que le Québec tire de l'arrière par rapport au reste du Canada non seulement en termes de niveau de littératie financière et d'éducation financière, mais aussi en termes d'épargne et de préparation à la retraite. Nous analysons la possibilité que ces différences soient expliquées par des différences socioéconomiques et explorons la possibilité que des spécificités institutionnelles telles que la prépondérance des régimes de retraite d'employeur à prestations déterminées au Québec puisse expliquer ces différences.
